This Week's Worship Service


Sunday, August 31, 2014 - “Perspective”
  ONE SERVICE ONLY at 10:30 a.m.

Worship Leader: Chris Sutherland
Worship Associate: Em Kianka
Musician: Denise Blase

Sometimes we find ourselves at an abyss. At other times, we simply cannot see our way clear to what's most important. How do we find perspective, when life throws us curve balls?

Woraship leader Chris Sutherland is a consultant specializing in advising charitable organizations on strategies for fundamentally changing social problems. She's a cradle Catholic who finally found her spiritual home in UUism as a young parent. She raised her daughters Molly and Rose in First Unitarian of Oakland, and is happiest tending her secret garden or running with her golden retriever, Bodie.
